We recently returned from our wonderful trip to Malaysia where we started off with 4 nights in Georgetown in the Green House @ Popus. I liked the accommodation without finding it brilliant. I would ideally rate this place as 3.5 stars but Tripadvisor doesn't offer such an option and my travel partners disagreed with me, hence the rating of 4... More

Was a pleasure to stay a restored georgetown home. It was to large for a solo traveler but would be ideal for a couple or small family. The Interior of the house was well fitted out and it was a very charming place to stay. The location was great and has a far better feel than staying in a large... More

We are staying for one month and this place is super. Nice living room with satellite tv and DVD player and library, well laid out kitchen with very efficient fridge/freezer. Solar shower and bathroom with washing machine and plenty of drying space, smaller second bedroom and decent size main bedroom. The air con works well and is necessary. Overall a... More

We wanted to see and experience Georgetown more like locals than tourists so we booked this beautifully restored heritage shophouse a stone's thrown from the main police headquarters in the centre of the UNESCO part pf the town. It is in a little cul de sac surrounded by Chinese neighbours and all the sights of Georgetown are in easy walking... More

This is a beautifully restored house, and being there means you are in a home away from home. This is not a hotel, so the services you would expect at a hotel are not provided. Nonetheless, we couldn't have been happier having the space and amenities this house provides. We stayed in number 12. The bottom floor has a huge... More

This is a wonderful house, centrally located in Georgetown but off a quiet lane (and a lane many taxi drivers don't know, so print out the location map first) The building has been beautifully converted and offers a large lounge, large kitchen/dining room and toilet downstairs, and a large bedroom, a smaller single bedroom and large bathroom upstairs. Amazing amount... More

My wife and I spent a week here and really enjoyed our stay. We were greeted at the airport by Mr. Khoo who was a great driver as well as a piece of history. The apartment was well outfitted and perfect for a couple. The second bedroom is essentially unusable as their is no air con in it nor are... More

Very good value for money taking into account the size of the house, appliances etc provided and location. It's about the same price as a room at Traders hotel but at least 4 times the size. They have put much thought into guests' needs - from baby chair and cot to sticky tape and elastic bands. Everything is new and... More

It was lovely to be met by Mr Khoo at the airport and taken to Popus Lane. Sharon gave us a very warm welcome and explained the 'workings' of the house very well. It is modern, light and has all the conveniences. We especially appreciated the washing machine and free WiFi. It was nice to be able to walk to... More

My wife and I stayed for 6 weeks in June/July 2012. There are three Green Houses all strung together along Popus Lane, we had number 8. It's in a great location, right in the heart of old George Town. As we were staying for such a long break we didn't want to have to use a hotel and Green House... More
